Na Fianna wants to take a moment celebrate the rich tapestry of nationalities that make up our Gaelic community, underscoring the inclusive nature of our beloved sport. It's a point of pride that our adult teams boasts representation from 17 different nationalities, a testament to the universal appeal of Gaelic games. Naturally, this diversity extends to our youth program, which proudly includes participants from 7 different nationalities.

We are fortunate to have dedicated members of the Na Fianna team who generously volunteer their time to run the program, embodying the spirit of community and inclusivity. Special recognition goes to Laura Comerford for her leadership and unwavering commitment to fostering the growth of our youth program.

We're thrilled to share highlights from the recent Na Fianna Kids Tournament, titled Na Fianna - Na Hoige, which took place on Saturday, April 13th. It was a heartening sight to see Hanoi bring their kids' team to participate in this friendly tournament, promoting Gaelic awareness and fostering community spirit. The tournament, catering to children aged 3 to 12, saw boys and girls come together in mixed teams, showcasing the inclusivity of our Gaelic community. Congratulations are in order for the Na Fianna Under 12's for clinching 1st place, while the Hanoi U 10's also emerged victorious. The youngest participants, aged 3 to 6, displayed their talents in various skill-building events, culminating in their very first match.

It's worth noting the impressive performance of the under 12's, who demonstrated skills that could rival even our esteemed Na Fianna adult teams. This serves as a testament to the dedication and hard work put in by both players and coaches alike.

Let's continue to celebrate diversity, inclusion, and the vibrant spirit of Gaelic games within our community.
